In This Guide

A gallery is a display of multiple, related images on a site. Galleries can be displayed in a variety of formats to visitors, such as a carousel slide or long scroll pages.

A gallery can be displayed as a standalone asset on its own page or as part of another asset, such as a page or section. It can also be incorporated into text, such as in the body of an article or as a gallery enhancement in the rich-text editor; see Working with enhancements in the rich-text editor.
